I just really don't like it, I also would not count it as ballad either.
She literally just perfomed it twice, at CDL09-10 and TA Tour 2016

I would love SAKURA to have a nice remaster, the mix on LoveAgain is a little thin. I really like that song. I could also hope for Mad World but... the mix on Made in japan is good enough for me.

I doubt SAKURA will be re-mixed... if the remaster is better, it’ll be subtle. :-/ I would rather have a reworked version (piano & orchestra version maybe). It’s the drums that kind of bother me.

A thing that bothers me with new Ayu mixes is, they often have a very bright reverb on the vocals that gets annoying. They did a very nice remaster on the Loveppears 2 years ago, vocals were so pleasing to the ears.

By the way guys, a lot of the selected songs have official acoustic versions (or piano-based originals like JEWEL and Curtain call). I tried making a playlist last night on my own iTunes and it sounded pretty good! I recommend it if you guys feel like it ~ a great way to kill time while waiting for this album to drop.

(And FYI, Moments' acoustic version on the single is so much better than the one in Ayu-mi-x 7 IMO)

I like the CD and Boxset cover, but I'm curious about the sleevecase.

^me too. According to cdjapan the first press DVD/bluray comes in sleeve packaging as well, so I wonder if we might get different covers like in Love songs.

Will mu-mo ask for t-shirt size for +2DVD/BD sets, or they just have one size? Not that I’m going to wear it if they’re going to stick with cover art on it, but I’m just wondering how does it work.

Woow amazing. Will definitely use it.

Okay now I’m deeply disappointed by the theme of the original covers.

Thank you! I think you should post this in the Ayu Fan Works section in case someone doesn't obsessively check this thread every day

Where does this picture originally comes from, though? I haven't seen it before and think it's reviving the Ayu spirit that I need in my life right now

I know someone said in this very thread that trying to understand Ayu's/Avex's marketing is a waste of brain cells but I still a bit confused by what happened ahaha

Ayu teases us every day for a full week with a new clip, only for it not be even hinted at during the Saturday video, and now radio silence? Talk about building suspense!

Are we expecting a preview of the new clip and/or Pray for you in tomorrow's drop at all?
